Veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Veneers are a very thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you are able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth and many other issues.

In terms of the process to place veneers, it is a process that takes approximately two to three visits. In the first visit, we will discuss the new shape and look of what we are going to accomplish by placing the veneers. Once we have put a plan in place, we will carefully prepare the teeth for the placement of the new veneers. As we complete this piece of the process, the next step is to take an impression of the newly prepared teeth. This impression will be sent to our laboratory for the final product to be fabricated. We only utilize the highest standard laboratory for fabrication of all of our work. This process at the laboratory takes between 10-14 days. While the new veneers are being fabricated at the lab, we will provide you with a beautiful temporary solution to wear for this time.

As the veneers are finalized, we will make every effort to make sure that your new veneers will feel just like your natural teeth. We will bond them into place ensuring that you can enjoy your new smile for a very long time!

How Porcelain Veneers Can Improve Your Smile

Veneers can correct mild to moderate size, shape, spacing and stains and discoloration problems caused by trauma or as a side effect of certain medications. The most common uses for porcelain veneers include:

  • Correct mild or moderate chips and cracks
  • Close small gaps and alignment issues (significant spacing and bite problems may require orthodontic treatment)
  • Change the size or shape of uneven teeth
  • Seal a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Whiten intrinsic stains and discolorations that can't be removed with professional teeth whitening treatments

How Dental Veneers Work

As their name implies, most veneers are made of a custom designed razor thin layer of porcelain, which is bonded directly onto the surface of your tooth and molded to achieve the desired size and shape. In some cases, a thin layer of enamel may have to be removed to ensure a natural and smooth fit. Porcelain closely matches the color and texture of a natural tooth, making veneers a highly effective but subtle treatment for the cosmetic imperfections that diminish a smile over time.

Veneers may be the perfect solution for you if you want to correct aesthetic issues with your front teeth. For more information on porcelain veneers or to make an appointment call your dentists at Cosmetic Smile Center, VA at 540-552-3111. Call today and find out more about porcelain veneers!
